About John D Morgan
John Morgan is an acoustic guitarist living in central Ohio. Unencumbered by fame or fortune, he is pursuing the musical dream: performing, teaching, writing and recording.
"Motionography" (2006), is about movement: flight, swimming, dancing - places: the moon, oceans, stars; and communication: the non-verbal, solo guitar type of communication. The sound of one guitar playing, fingers dancing, sounds splashing, sonic canvas, air art, here–gone, wooden heart made flesh, steel strings spring to life. The sound of one guitar laughing, of joy bouncing, strengthening, calling, inviting to the dance. The sound of one guitar moving, across the star field accompanied by dancers, singers, swimmers, writing rhythm, resonating life
"Capture the Night" was released in November of 2004. Fresh arrangements of holiday classics. Over a thousand CDs were sold in the two months before Christmas
“Stories” was released in 1999. Cuts from this disc have received radio play on over 100 stations across the U.S
In 1994 he began performing original acoustic music. In 1996 “The Journey: Places Real and Imagined” was released. “Echoes,” a nationally syndicated radio program hosted by John Diliberto, played cuts from that CD during 1996 and 1997. The title cut from “The Journey" was included on Volume 3 of a sampler disc released by Acoustic Music Resource. “House by the River,” also from “The Journey,” was included on a sampler disc compiled and internationally distributed by Poetman USA. Four songs from this CD were in continuous rotation on the "Atmospheres" Digital Cable Network for several years.
John published "Foundation for Great Guitar Playing" in 2003. This book/CD set clearly explains and applies the basics of music theory to the fretboard. John regularly presents this material in classrooms, workshops and private lessons.
